Dreams are the gestalt of our past and future experiences.
Using years of found sounds, found algorithms, digital signal processing, interactivity, improvisation and chance, we explore the intersection of anxiety, performance, logic, the surreal, the dreaming, the dreamt and synthesize a kind of "ambient storytelling". We make the micro macro, the macro micro, the soloist the accompanist and the leader the pack. We look inward outwardly. Sometimes waking, from even the most mundane of dreams, is a relief and a disappointment.
